Subject[PATCH 3.2 023/106] of: fdt: add missing allocation-failure check
3.2.93-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Johan Hovold <>

commit 49e67dd17649b60b4d54966e18ec9c80198227f0 upstream.

The memory allocator passed to __unflatten_device_tree() (e.g. a wrapped
kzalloc) can fail so add the missing sanity check to avoid dereferencing
a NULL pointer.

Fixes: fe14042358fa ("of/flattree: Refactor unflatten_device_tree and add fdt_unflatten_tree")
